So far in solar’s journey, net metering has been the secret sauce for many sectors that makes the generation profile of solar make economic sense.Without net metering, and considering the gradual plateauing trend of installation cost reductions, many are speculating that demand response and storage mechanisms, such as generation-coupled batteries, will be the future of helping to monetize the energy value of customer-sited distributed solar and maintain favorable economics and incentive for consumers to go solar.Previously, the ITC for solar energy was set to reduce to 10% after December 31, 2016.The credit is now extended through the end of 2019 at the 30% level, and will step down to 26% in 2020, 22% in 2021, and 10% in 2022 and future years.
Those credits are used at night when loads are typically higher in the house and the PV system is not generating.The PUC hearings for these rulings received enormous press and included testimony from stakeholders across the energy industry such as high profile energy developer Elon Musk, Solar City board chairman.Solar City currently holds Nevada’s largest market share for residential solar.* Chatroulette zufällige Video-Chat für neue Leute kennen lernen (kostenlos) Meet unbekannten Webcam-Video und dabei anonym bleiben, ideal für Begegnungen zwischen Menschen.

The related issues behind this vote were decidedly a bit more complex than in Nevada due to the uniquely high solar penetration Hawaii is experiencing (as of October 2015, roughly 16% of HECO Companies customers were generating power with grid-connected solar the capacity of which amounted to about 35% penetration on the system peaks.
